Blue Monday


Good morning everyone~ It's Blue Monday and I want to thank Sally for hosting again this week.
I have a few blues for you today. I will start with Hubby's medals that he won for running races and marathons. They are red, white, and blue. He ran for a few years and then got into weight lifting which he is still into. He is in great shape!
He had also won a few ribbons; among those there are some blue ones, but I can't find them.These are the medals that my grandsons Cameron and Brent won in soccer this past summer. Again in blue and white. Sorry I don't have any pictures of them wearing the medals. They were so cute!Then there is this wall plaque which is above the door in the office. It is one of my hubby's favourite verses from the Bible. When we lived in New Brunswick, we had lead an adult bible study on Sundays evenings after the service and when we were leaving the province to move to Prince Edward Island, one of the things they presented us with was this plaque. It brings back fond memories whenever we look at it! It is blue also.
"Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind." Romans 12:2 is the text written on it.


Thank you for visiting today and please make your way over to Sally's to see all the other blue offerings today. Click on the Blue Monday button on my sidebar or the link http://smilingsally.blogspot.com/ Have a wonderful week everyone.

Hello Sandi, it is good to be back home again. I missed my blogging friends. Thank you for your visits.

The ribbons are impressive and so is the fact that he still works out. He will probably out live all of us. LOL. I love the blue ones from the children's soccer games. My grands play soccer and it is very important to them.

I too love the verse from Romans. A nice gift and I am sure well deserved.

Have a happy day.

Hugs...Jeanne

Hi Sandi! Oh, Happy Blue Monday! Love your blues and my hubby is a runner also. He runs in the Houston Marathon every January. I just am a good cheerleader! :)
Thanks for popping in to see me and I do hope you'll come back.
Be a sweetie,

Thanks for the comment to my Blue Monday entry. That picture was taken in Canada's Wonderland few weeks ago. My brother and his family is in Toronto.

Have a great day.
